2. What does your username mean?
Psh, no idea. Back in 2005-2006 my online screen names varied every week it seemed. I was studying chemistry at the time and wanted a science-y name so picked and started to run with Xenon. But that is not an uncommon name as such, so when signing up for dA, I had to stick something on the end, hence XenonRay. Admittedly I don't like it anymore. Try saying it in real life, especially in the American pronouciation of Xenon (zeenon). Doesn't work. But it's hard to come up with something new.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Dreamer, thoughtful, realist. Two of those contradict a bit. Idealism without blindness...I dunno.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
But I know I had older work. There's plenty of my old pencil work that used to be here. At one point in my dA prehistory I deleted a lot of my old gallery. Even today I have 38 pictures in storage. Old crappy stuff that embarrasses me now.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Digital, as while using a tablet can feel "like drawing wearing thick gloves", with sufficient time I can do more in Photoshop than I ever could just on paper. More specifically, portraits and character artwork.7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'd like to make another leap towards realistic faces. Or figure out landscapes/perspective.8. What was your first favourite?
Probably on the obsession with the then-upcoming Twilight Princess.9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Fanart of favourite characters, grimy military things, slightly dark fantasy, Elder Scrolls universe, Mass Effect universe (less these days), Zelda universe. 10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Awkward! Based on my favourites, I frequently enjoy art from JesusFood
No doubt many others!11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Creepy stalker time! But maybe DaiShiHUN
Long term supporters, collaborators and/or papercrafters. 12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
The friendly papercrafting arms race and Mass Effect model series of DaiShiHUN
has kept me striving to improve my papercraft skills. Likewise with a few other crafters.13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wacom A5 Bamboo tablet, Photoshop CS3 or something oldish, mechanical HB pencil.14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Art is almost always done at my desk. Sorry that's not very exciting.15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I enjoyed (kinda) the times I opened up for requests on the forums. Somewhat stressful and lots of polite declines but it's nice to make things for other people. Also working in collaboration with studioofmm
to produce both an Imp and Twili Midna papercrafts. The former got a Daily Deviation out of some of her pics.
